SUMMARY --

Best-Selling Authors Fenton & Waltz Welcome You to the World of Onyx Webb. This is Book One. (Episodes 1, 2, and 3)

One reviewer says, "Fabulous. Different. Odd. Crazy. Wonderful. I've never read anything like it. You've created the weirdest, coolest new genre of fiction and I love it."

- It’s June, 1980 and piano prodigy, Juniper Cole is on the way to her senior prom.

- It’s January 2010, and Koda Mulvaney has blown through his 20 million dollar trust fund and is told by his father to return home and get to work.

- It’s August, 1904 and little Onyx Webb is on her way to the famous World’s Fair in St. Louis with her father, Catfish.

Two of the three will see a ghost, one will become a ghost and everyone will learn that life is hard to let go of even when you’re dead. And that's just Book One. Designed to read like a supernatural soap opera, Onyx Webb is a paranormal suspense series, with supernatural romance, as well as a dash of historical fiction. The stories may haunt you, the darkness may disturb you, but ultimately you’ll be reminded to treasure every moment of your life because… If you think life is precious now? Just wait until you’re dead.

 The Review.

Don't judge a book by its cover.

If you've ever heard that before, you know what that means. When I was first approached by the author (hell, whenever I shop for a new book), I always look at the cover, and this one gave me doubts. However, I read the excerpt provided by Amazon, and found myself wanting more. I couldn't wait to get the book in the mail!

Onyx Webb is beautifully designed with all the wonderful graphics in the paperback version. I love the different character perspectives and the character building with each page turn. I do have to admit, it can most certainly get confusing from all the time jumps, which makes you have to work just a bit harder, making you look back to see where the last chapter took place, etc. However, after you get the hang of each main character, you're able to continue reading flawlessly.

The only character I really had an opinion on is Koda. I hated the little prick at first and didn't feel sorry when he stupidly spent all his money and was forced to work by his father. However, even though I hated him, I really loved where his story was going.

As I continued to read (at this point, I couldn't put the book down), the story kept building, connecting pieces with every page, while answering questions that rose during the reading. All in all, I really enjoyed the book, moreso than I thought I would (cause y'know... judging the book by its cover and all). With that, definitely pick up this book if you love paranormal suspense, but my advice to those who choose to get this book? Buy the paperback version to get the full experience with all of those graphics in the pages :) I absolutely cannot wait for Book 2!
